What is the clitoris?
As Embryos, We All Start As Female
The clitoris and penis come from the same embryonic tissue. Depending on the chromosome make up and hormones present, at approx 5-6 weeks the embryonic genitals decide whether to become a penis or labia. The clitoris components are similar to a penis in that is has erectile tissue, such as the shaft, a glans, a foreskin etc.
If your intimate partnership involves penetrative intercourse, the clitoris will usually need to be stimulated as well, in order to experience orgasm

Does The G Spot Exist?
When a biological female is aroused the clitoris engorges with blood, becomes enlarged and hugs the vagina. The 'G spot' is an area where clitoral tissue is part of the vaginal wall under the urethra. Because everybody’s location and anatomy of the clitoris is a little different, some women can feel a 'G spot' and others can’t. 'G spot' orgasms are most likely due to the stimulation of part of the clitoris.

History Of The Missing Clitoris - Proven By A Female Melbourne Surgeon In 1998
Many anatomy and health text books have left out the clitoris all together, in Gray’s Anatomy - The 'Bible' of Anatomy text books for student Doctors and Health Professionals, it was incorrect in 1901 and erased completely in 1948.
2009 was the first 3D ultrasound we had of the clitoris, thanks to research from a Gynaecological surgeon and a reconstructive surgeon who both work to repair the clitoris of women who are victims of FGM – Their research to get these images took three years with very limited funding and even more limited support form colleagues and peers - it seems female pleasure was not important enough to spend money on researching.
